I’m such a romantic gush!  I was listening to some great music (Nina Simone, Iron & Wine) while prepping this FANTASTICLY ADORABLE engagement session for the blog. The combination gives me the goosebumps and giggles!  Grace and Geoff flew in from NYC for the weekend to finish some wedding planning and fun photos around Chicago. Note: when I first talked with them over the phone they both told me they were not photogenic…ummm, I beg to differ guys :)   (more…)

After my engagement shoot on Saturday, I felt so alive and springy!  The sun was shining, and I happened to walk past my ladies at Dilly Lily!  Absolutely fell in love with their new moss covered vases and Leslie’s tulip arrangement.  Sold.  But now, I’m staring at snow.  Ugh.  Bring May flowers!!

Happy Monday!  This is my man’s 3rd year participating in this great cause!  This year more of his friends (along with their lady supporters, that’s us) will be joining him as a team in St. Louis June 6th! “Tour de Cure is a series of fund-raising cycling events held in 40 states nationwide to benefit the American Diabetes Association.”  It’s a 100 mile event but the boys have set a goal of 100km (62 miles) and the ladies will be bbq-ing food energy when they are done :)  I know times are tough – donations are very much appreciated – click here.  Every bit helps!

PS – credit to lady friend/wife Nat for the fabulous team name & JZ for the awesome logo!  Fist pump for team effort.
